The weather in NYC has definitely been HOT! I finished this summer top for Melody a while ago, but last week was the first time she took it for a test drive. The pattern calls for sock weight yarn, but I used Sublime Organic Cotton DK. I knew I wanted for her to wear it in the summer and all I had for sock yarn was wool. I followed the 6 months size in the pattern, obviously using larger needles to accommodate the yarn, and made it longer. The top down construction made it easy to adjust the size. I kept measuring it against her pajama top so I knew when the length was perfect for her.The yarn is so soft and it was very nice to knit with. Which is not the case for all cottons. The knitted fabric has a very nice drape. I know she will get a lot of use out of this knitted cotton t-shirt. I purposely made it a little longer so she can wear it for more than one season.

Needles: US 6 - 4.0 mm
Yarn: Sublime Organic Cotton DK in color: 94 Scrumble (light pink)
